Trey Farmer fancies using recycled materials is â€œhotter than Hansel in a black shirt on a summer Sunday,â€ but who would have believed it would be so hot that plastic concrete would come of it?

By grinding up plastic waste and mixing it with portland cement, Henry Miller created a material just as strong as traditional concrete made with mined aggregate: plastic concrete.
Aside from introducing a viable energy-saving, eco-friendly plastic concrete process, this innovative idea also won him first place in the â€œComponent Categoryâ€ of the Concrete Thinking for a Sustainable World competition.
